Prior to joining Hogan Eickhoff, Abby attended Valparaiso University School of Law where she participated in Law Review as a student editor, the Sports Legal Clinic, and was a member of the trial advocacy team. Her time on the trial advocacy team is what sparked her interest in criminal law and allowed for her start advocating early on. Her time working in the Sports Legal Clinic allowed for her to gain experience working with clients to meet their goals, prepare potential witnesses and expert witnesses, and prepare and manage cases from start to finish.

Personally, Abby is from Green Bay, WI where she has spent her entire life. She graduated from Green Bay Southwest High School and St. Norbert College. She was a student athlete in high school and continued with Track and Cross County for her first two years studying at St. Norbert. When she is not working, she enjoys spending time with her husband and family, hiking with her dog, golfing, watching baseball and spending the weekends up north at her family cottage.
